Unwanted activity from Sony HD/DVD


Active Member
When my RDR-HX525 is switched off it clicks and whirrs every hour - I assume it's updating the programme listing but it's most annoying because the only place I can locate it is about two feet away from my pillow.

I tried removing all the channels from the list (I don't use it anyway) but that made no difference.

Aside from unplugging the beast every night, is there any way to stop it doing this?

Assume you mean on the main supply? Only problem with that is that I have discovered even a 5 second disconnect means that it loses its memory of where you last watched any of the recordings, possibly other settings too. A 2p capacitor would have given a few hours backup!

I would really like to find a way of turning the EPG off.
